"Streets Won’t Let Me Chill"

[Intro]
Hey what’s up, it’s Craft
Leave a message and I’ll get back at you
Peace

[Hook]
Streets won’t let me chill
Streets won’t let me chill
Streets won’t let me chill
Streets won’t let me chill
Streets won’t let me chill

[Verse 1]
Aye yo, what’s goin on, Crafty?
Been a few weeks since we really spoke last
See I actually been meanin to give you a call
Just to tell you I love you and all, you my brother, man
But I’m in trouble, man, it’s my cousin, man
He put a bullet in the head of another man
Now the cops want him more than Uncle Sam
Knockin at my door and you know my pops hustlin
And I vent to you cause you the only one that understands
And I’m stressed out, moms and the whole fam freakin
So I’m sneakin to the streets and movin packs every weekend, man I’m just tryna help out
Cause my cousin need lawyer money and bail bonds
And I know what he did was wrong but I’m just tryna be strong so my fam can move on
Cause I ain’t tryin see em torn, nah
Sorry to talk for so long but the streets won’t let me chill
And these days, I light my first blunts in the morn cause the streets won’t let me chill
sh*t, and I wanna go to college like you but the streets won’t let me chill
So I’m just out here chasin dollars my dude cause the streets won’t let me chill

[Verse 2]
Aye yo, what it do, Craft?
We miss you on the block bro, when you comin back?
I know that you on your school sh*t down in D.C
But just wait til you get back and you see me
I’m gettin cream, see, and all the bad b*tches on my di*k and all these dudes wanna be me
I’m tryna ball like they do on tv but yeah I worry that some day you’ll be yellin free me
But f*ck it though, I gotta get rent for my mother though
I’m the man of the house and sh*t, the future won’t wait for me
So I’m about to start sellin white like reverse slavery
And you in college and I’m glad but I wasn’t given all the opportunities you had
So please, Craft, don’t start wit one of your speeches
Got too much to deal wit, f*ck that degree sh*t
Look I don’t mean to be harsh but the streets won’t let me chill
And for me, bein legit was just never in the cards cause the streets won’t let me chill
And you white with two parents so you got balance but the streets won’t let me chill
And sh*t, nobody ever noticed my talents cause the streets won’t let me chill

[Hook]
Streets won’t let me chill (nah)
Streets won’t let me chill (they won’t let me chill)
Streets won’t let me chill (they won’t let me chill)
Streets won’t let me chill

[Verse 3]
Aye yo, what it is yall?
I been chillin here at school but I miss yall
Keepin it New York down here I ain't switch yall
Same old Craft but lately I been p*ssed off
Cause your situations got me stressed for you
Yall like family, I only want the best for you
We from the same hood and yall good persons
So why would our paths be so divergent?
It got my mind hurtin and my heart sore
And a year ago, I would’ve told you school was the answer but I’m not sure
Cause I’ve learned a lot more and the benefits of this society are not yours
Cause these kids down here, they ain't smarter than you and they don’t work harder than you
They just inherited social capital so I ain't mad at you, I’m mad at the Capital and their need for capital
Tryna enjoy my skill but the streets won’t let me chill
Cause all I want for my homies is an even playing field but the streets won’t let me chill
And look I ain't tryin preach cause dudes gotta eat so the streets won’t let me chill
I just wish when I laid down at night I could sleep but the streets won’t let me chill
